“My wife’s family owns a llama farm/vineyard combo here in North Carolina. This was her llama from when she was 12 years old. She used to travel the country showing him in llama shows (sorta like dog shows but with llama) so he is very special to our family!” - Tmo1992
Here’s the cover to the children’s book I’ve been working on all semester!! It’s called Machu Picchu and it’s about a baby llama getting lost in the ruins of the same name in Peru… but fortunately he finds a really big friend that is happy to help him get home! ^^
This may sound like a stupid question, but here goes - what does referring to someone by surname without honorifics usually mean? About the speaker's personality or relation to the addressee. Because HaruMaki, Hoshi, and I think Hinata refer to people like that, so I'm curious as to what it can mean or represent
Yobisute is generally considered pretty rude to use with people you don’t know, and perfectly accepted between people who are close–this is because it’s kind of like an expression of familiarity/being equal to or above the person you’re speaking to.
In real life, honorifics and how they’re used is pretty complicated and messy–you’d never go up to your boss or teacher or whatever and just call them by their surname unless you had a particularly pally relationship with them, but on the whole not everyone follows the “rules” as it were.
In fiction, meanwhile, usually these decisions are made in order to tell you something about the character.
Hinata probably doesn’t use honorifics because symbolically he’s trying to very hard to convince himself that he’s on everyone else’s level. HaruMaki doesn’t use them because she is 1000% done with these losers and ain’t here to make friends. Hoshi doesn’t use them because he’s done hard time and is outside the normal mores of society. Momota doesn’t use them because he’s just the type of dude who speaks really informally/rudely. Yumeno doesn’t use them because it’s probably too much of a pain in the ass to bother.
Happy Birthday to one of the most wonderful people in the world. One of the most talented girls who inspires me and gives me strength. My dearest Amber, who is so precious to me.
Thank you for being who you are, for teaching me a lot of things and for giving us such valuable and beautiful messages that quite apart from me, have helped many others too. I feel so proud of you and for everything you do. I’ll always support and be here for you. I love you so much cutie llama.

fahc idea were Ryan actually bought a Zoo. Or at least that’s what he tells the crew, they want to see his zoo but he wont tell them were it is. So the news for an entire month is the Fakes are breaking into zoos. They don’t steal anything they just try to get a reaction out of Ryan. By now they’ve broken into every zoo in 200 mile radius of Los Santos and still Ryan wont tell them. Months pass and everyone forgets about Ryan’s zoo. Until Geoff comes up with this great outing for the Crew. He decides to take them to the tiny little dinky Petting Zoo just a little South of Trevors Airbase. Ryan is adamantly against it and no one knows why. They go anyway thinking the Lads would have fun making fun of the livestock and if not they can get a Llama to spit on Gavin. So heres the crew piled into one of Jacks roadtrip Vans and Ryan is practically coming up with any excuse to go back to the Penthouse:
“I left my set of Knives there.” Ryan plays with the lock on the door looking like he was debating on jumping out.
“You have another set anyways.” Jack nervously watches Ryan as the other four crew members bickered in the back.
“I left those too.”
So they get there and maybe two families and a straggler is there. They quickly exit, especially when thet see Ryan’s mask. (No one knows why he decided to wear it.)
They enter the petting zoo and the Lads run off, yelling of getting Jeremy to try and ride an Ostrich. Ryan looks like he’s about to tell them no but he shuts his mouth quickly.
The Gents follow at a slower pace, and they watch as every animal chases Ryan down their fence, almost like they knew him. Geoff finds it hilarious but Jack has this sudden all knowing look on her face and she asks as the pass a Bull Cow that is practically begging Ryan for some kind of food or petting:
“So your zoo…” Jack smirks as Geoff is currently complaining about an Alpaca screaming at him.
Ryan looks around before pulling his mask off. “Listen they all needed homes.”
Jack nods, “What’s the Bulls name?” Her eyes glint because she already knows the answer.
From Star vs. the Forces of Evil - Camping Trip. This episode is like a top 5 episode for me so far. Maybe top 3. Father/child storylines always kill me and this one is elegantly told, the jokes are razor sharp, and Alan Tudyk’s voice work is beyond incredible here. “Don’t be weird, Marco” and “llama pajama” deserve Annies all on their own. Between this episode and Ludo in the Wild, his work this season is blowing my mind.
This melody is the “King Butterfly Theme” and will be coming back in various forms later this season. Burn it into your brains. We’re doing this with a bunch of recurring characters. Next week especially.
